Anthony's programs are always full of fun and laugher and the program
is 100% ad lib. Anthony Kaminski - has been the top dog on Polka Plus
since Feb 14, 1994. Anthony began his career as a DJ by sitting in for
Anthony Geppert in the 70's. Although Anthony grew up in the
era of Rock and Roll, he found that polkas and waltzes opened up
another vista for him. Anthony has added
many new things to Polka Plus since it's inception that includes
inviting special guests to co-host
the program. Polka Plus offers a wide variety of Eastern European music
and Anthony welcomes
special requests during his live show.
